The Franklin Police Department and Heard County Sheriff’s Department want to remind motorists to be extra careful and expect longer commute times, due to students traveling to and from school. Planning ahead for your commute will undoubtedly save time, lower frustration levels, increase levels of alertness and improve safety for yourself and loved ones. In addition to allowing enough travel time, simple things such as identifying the school zones, the time frames that they are active, the locations of pedestrian crossings and school bus pick up times along the routes you travel. This will enable residents to plan their daily commute efficiently. Other tips for the start of the school year include:
Riding the Bus
Walking and Biking to School
“The start of a new school year is often chaotic, as many of us modify our schedule to adjust to students returning to school. We ask that you remain alert and aware when traveling through school zones and be mindful of buses making frequent stops to pick up students”, stated Chief Kevin Hannah of the Franklin Police Department.
“I encourage all parents to sit down a few minutes and remind your children of these safety tips and others that are important. If we all follow these simple rules and obey traffic laws, we can make everyone’s daily travels safe and enjoyable”, stated Sheriff Ross Henry of the Heard County Sheriff’s Department.
